Keep the feeling and flavours of summer going a little longer with this delicious Mango Salsa!!
I was planning to marinate and barbecue some pork fillet for dinner and wanted to serve something with it! Looking around my kitchen, I spotted four ripe mangoes sitting in the fruit bowl, (sounds like the start to a joke!!) having bought a box of eight, I was keen to use up the rest before they became over ripe! My plan was to make mango salsa to go with the pork. Searching through the fridge, I luckily found what I wanted and quickly put it together! It was so good we had the same again the next day!! And now there’s only 2 very ripe mangoes sitting in my fruit bowl!! Hopefully tomorrow there’ll be another flash of inspiration as to what to do with those!!
Its really so very easy to make and can turn any grilled meat, fish or deliciously juicy grilled prawns into a very impressive meal! For a vegetarian option, try serving alongside some chargrilled aubergine, courgette, pepper and halloumi cheese. I’m not going to give accurate quantities, just a rough guide for what you need. I’m a bit of a fan of a recipes that you can guesstimate, and really with this one you can’t go wrong.
So simply, prepare one perfectly ripe mango and finely chop the flesh. Place in a bowl with a de-seeded and finely chopped red pepper, a quarter of a red onion, peeled and finely chopped and one red chilli, deseeded and finely chopped. Squeeze over the juice of a lime, a little splash of olive oil along with a good handful of chopped fresh coriander and a little seasoning. Stir together to combine and your salsa is ready.
Serve generous spoonfuls as its definitely best eaten on the day its made.
